If you wish to get out of the contrast ideas for interior painting, then this information will help you a lot. Many of you might be wondering about having a single color to highlight your home, having most of the items in the same shade.
There are many options in which you can go for matching paint colors. However, the primary part of the exercise is to find the right color or its shades to match an existing object. A little know-how can help you do this. Here are some tips that will help you create an amazing effect.
This is only right in case the object is not too dark. Else you can have a single wall in this dark shade, exactly complementing the dark furniture or dark kitchen cabinets and other walls in a lighter shade to create a perfect effect. In case of dual shaded cabinets, the color can be matched with the lighter shade.
In case of dark furniture, cabinets, countertop, or any other object go for a lighter tone in the same color. While choosing you can opt for lighter shades if you want to add size to the area. The darker shades are best to create a dramatic look. While matching the exteriors, you can opt to do it with the exterior furniture or the flooring.
Make sure your wall is clean. Touch up for high gloss, even after a few days of applying this can be difficult. Gloss finishing makes finding colors really a tough task. That's the reason it's easier to match flat colors. So, matching the walls with objects that have a matte finish is much easier.
For coordinating the colors with your existing wall or any other object like furniture, cabinets, etc., you need to follow this procedure. Get the sample chips, hold them one by one against the walls or the object on different spots on a bright sunny day. Match the chip with that patch which is getting indirect sunlight.
Remember, never hold the chip on the object or wall that is illuminated by a sunbeam. Keep trying till one of the chips matches exactly. Once you buy the color, just paint a small patch. Wait and apply the next coat. Most of the time the shade deepens as it dries and of course, with more coats. Now look at the result and then you can go for final painting.
Hope the aforementioned tips and ideas will help you to spice up your home decor. Think twice and don't forget the patch test before you start the painting procedure.
